The Great Barrier Reef Is Bleaching—but These Striking Deep-Sea Coral Gardens Near It Are Hanging on

The Great Barrier Reef has been having a rough year. Warm waters have led to record coral bleaching this year and could hasten the reef’s die-off. But while surface corals are suffering, nearly a mile beneath the surface, deep-sea corals near the Great Barrier Reef are thriving.Read more...

The Great Barrier Reef Faces Third Mass Bleaching Event in Five Years

Australia’s forests burned over the summer, but now its underwater ecosystems are in trouble, too. The Great Barrier Reef is facing some severe stress due to extreme heat and faces a “widespread bleaching event,” according to an update from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Coral Reef Watch.Read more...

Two Thirds of the Great Barrier Reef Is Now Officially Bleached

For the second time in 12 months, Australia’s Great Barrier Reef has experienced a severe coral bleaching event. A recent investigation shows that two-thirds of the reef is now a sickly white hue, and it’s not immediately clear if the iconic ecosystem will ever bounce back to its former glory.Read more...

The Worst Coral Die-off in History Just Got Worse

The National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration has just released an update on the state of the Earth’s coral reefs, and it’s bleak as hell. For the third year in a row, many reefs around the world will be exposed to hotter-than-normal temperatures, placing them at risk (again) for catastrophic die-offs.Read more...

The Great Barrier Reef is affected by bleaching

A new study has confirmed that the worst assumptions of the environmentalists become reality as 93 percent of the Great Barrier Reef in Australia has been affected by bleaching The case was set: the water temperature is rising and this causes coral bleaching. Terry Hughes, the principal investigator and founder of a team fighting this... The post The Great Barrier Reef is affected by bleaching appeared first on Travel Press Release.

The First Coral Reefs Are Starting to Permanently Dissolve

As if the oceans needed more terrible news , scientists have learned that the coral reefs surrounding the Florida Keys are dissolving. The culprit—ocean acidification—wasn’t expected to start hitting reefs hard for another three decades.Read more...

This Is Why the Great Barrier Reef Is Dying

The Great Barrier Reef is one of the most celebrated ecosystems on Earth—and it’s dying . Months of extreme heat have turned thousands of miles of pristine habitat into an endless watery graveyard. This year’s coral bleaching event comes as a warning. If we don’t bring carbon emissions down fast, the Great Barrier Reef will not survive the century.Read more...

It’s official: The Great Barrier Reef is totally screwed

Photo: ARC Centre of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies If you’ve ever dreamed of scuba diving the Great Barrier Reef, then you might want to hurry up and go already. This week, marine biologists with the National Coral Bleaching Taskforce reported that 95% of reefs from Cairns to Papua New Guinea are now “severely bleached.” Water temperatures are too hot thanks to global climate change. This year’s El Niño only made it worse. Now, we’re faced with an unprecedented global coral die-off that ...

Nerd Night Tomorrow Tackles Corals, Quakes

The last Nerd Nite of the year will take attendees under water, into volcanoes, and up to the moon. The usually monthly local gathering, featuring presentations from all disciplines and gently facilitated by alcohol, is part of a global network of events held in more than 90 cities. Tomorrow, the three featured speakers are: Chris Jury on “The 2014-16 Global Coral Bleaching Event: WTF Just Happened?” Jury grew up in Michigan, and became interested in coral reefs in high school (setting up his...
